SORRY if my comment appear two times for this film. But my FIRST comment seemed lost in the fourth dimension.
A woman comes to visit her ex husband in a remote village, very small one, and it appears that, one night, a mysterious gasoline tanker gets lost in the village just before his gigantic tank is released from the fuel, and then the whole village gets right into hell. You have understood why... The poor woman has her ex husband killed in the "accident" and then she will investigate. This is a lost in advance fight for this poor woman, because she will have to struggle against evil forces, a cynical world of lies and manipulation where the State Reason always wins in the end. It's also a movie speaking of ecology and nature protection against big companies interest. A rather good topic for a TV movie instead a big screen one. So the film did not find its audiences. Yes, yes, yes, Yves Boisset should have doe it for TV. But Robert Enrico is a great director anyways.
